I just recently passed my Security plus and do not have a ton of Security experience however I want to get into the field. Specifically Pen testing, how much coding knowledge is involved in this test ? Did you find this test to be difficult ? What is the best material to get started ?

    Coding knowledge? None. It's purely a multiple choice exam so even doing labs are not needed to pass it.I don't recommend the official course material, which is basically 3000 or so PowerPoint slides that are mostly grammatically correct. CEH makes a good resume checkbox but it provides a relatively mediocre learning experience in my opinion.
